United Kingdom courier ‘Royal Mail’ workers will go on strike on November 4th, according to BBC. The workers will go on strike for 24 hours, and this could have a major affect on Call of Duty: Ghosts delivers for Nov. 5th.

The vote, which the Communication Workers Union (CWU) said was four-to-one in favour, would be the first national strike at Royal Mail in almost four years.

Royal Mail is one of the leading couriers that are partnered with major retailers like Amazon, GAME UK, Tesco, and more. If you preordered Ghosts from online to have it delivered, there is a possibility that your game may not be delivered on time. As of now, there’s no official comment from any of the retailers or Activision on how this strike could affect your delivery.

At this point, contacting your retailer on updates on your delivery status would be the best. It does not seem like the retailers and Royal Mail can work anything out to resolve this issue, unless the retailers decided to use a different courier.

If you want to get your game on Nov. 5th for sure, then it would probably be the best if you preorder for in store pick.

We’ll update as we get more information on this.

      • Matt Trumble

        what i thought it was a worldwide retailer but gamestop is like the best

        • Primey_

          Nah. They have a site which will ship to uk addresses but gamespot retail stores in the uk were closed in 2011 because they failed to compete with existing GAME stores (GAME being a retailer for video games)

    Nothing feels better than going in person and physically obtaining your copy rather than waiting on delivery

    • DanDustEmOff

      I’d rather save my time and not have to worry about the disc by downloading it.

      • NiftyGam3r

        Ive had friends that complain about digital games sometimes corrupting or messing up. Disc is not bad if you take care of your games i still have cod bo1 in perfect condition not one smudge or scratch. And i like going to the store i get to see other games and have a reason to go out and walk around

        • exeterman2

          Bitch please I still have PS1 games in perfect condition, get on ma level! (Banter!)

        • DanDustEmOff

          Game saves can become corrupt on either and discs can be scratched and broken this leaves you in a pickle. Buy the game again or no longer posses the game. On Steam/Origin if the game becomes corrupted (which has never happened to me) I can just download the game again for free.

  • TepidBlack

    oh no the game I was totally going to buy won’t be delivered on time, truly awful

    /s

  • DanDustEmOff

    Unless the royal mail take out Steam I will be good to go. Gotta love living in the digital age.

  • Alexander Kleinwechter

    They probably are tired of delivering so many call of duty copies each year!

  • exeterman2

    I feel sorry as I know loads of people who always preorder delivery. I preorder everything in store at my local GAME. (Not preordered this but even so)
